My son absolutely loves this school and learns so much! We love the management here- they make such a great team and they are so friendly and professional! Ms. Laurie in the Kangas classroom is so great with our son. He is always coming

This school is amazing! We have a daughter in the nursery room and couldn't be happier with the care she gets. The teachers are so great. They genuinely care about our daughter and give her lots of one-on-one attention and love. I pop in

We just had to write something because yesterday we had a conversation with our sons First Grade Teacher who told us that he was testing at the top of his class in reading and writing and also doing very well in Math. She asked us where

Our child has been at two of these centers after we moved from Castle Rock to Littleton and he has been there since he was a baby, he's now in 1st grade. This daycare really made a difference in his and our lives. We have many friends

I have a six year old and a two year old and we have been at CC for about three years now. I was asked by my six year olds kindergarten teacher what preschool he attended, because she was so impressed with where he was at academically.

I cannot express what an awful experience Children's Choice has been for our family. I have three children currently in the school and in the 18 months we have been there, we have had no less than five directors and more teachers than I can even count or our children can remember. The last teacher was fired after less than a month. The communication is horrible, and our children are nothing more than money signs walking through the door. If you are seriously considering this center please at least ask what the turn over ratio is. If they are honest with you, it will be shocking.

My children used to be in a in home center but they were not learning anything so we took them to another local center and we didn't see that they were learning anything new even after several months of being there. We were recommended to go to Children's choice and within just a few weeks my children were so happy and coming home so excited to tell us all of the new things they learn everyday. I am so grateful to the people of this center every time I see my children coming home with big smiles and I enjoy listening to their singing on the way home. I highly recommend this daycare.

We have been though numerous childcare centers and Au Pairs. Finally we found Children's Choice. Our 5 yr old LOVES going to school each day. She tells us all about what she has learned each day. They have a curriculum that really teaches the children instead of just babysitting them. I would recommend this center to anyone that has an interest in growing and developing their children.

Angie

Pros: class size, teacher experience, Core Knowledge Curriculum, Parent Teacher Involvement

We have been attending Childrens Choice since Sept. 08 and my 5 year old loves it. We used to take her to one of the larger chains, starts with a K and ends with an E and she absolutely hated it, she was previously enrolled at a Montessori school. The teachers and staff at CC are friendly and my daughter can't wait to get in the car and head to school every day!!

My husband and I have both of our children currently enrolled at Children's Choice. We have been extremely saddened to see the changes that have been made in the last couple of weeks, particularly with communication, or the lack thereof, as this has been a concern in the past many times. I don't even know where to start. We were so happy when our eldest child's teacher was promoted to a director position (well deserved), even though we didn't want to see her leave the Highlands Ranch center. My family was so happy when 6 months later she was transferred back as a director. I can speak for myself and many other families when I say that she was WONDERFUL!. She genuinely cared for the families and children. She had individual relationships with our family as well as our friends' families who are also enrolled . My children looked forward to seeing her in the mornings. After not seeing her around for a while, we asked where she was (assuming she was on vacation as nothing was communicated about her being gone otherwise). We got the beat around from whoever was at the front desk. What a disapointment when we heard from our children's teachers that she was a "lay off" and replaced by someone that does not have any qualifications to be a director AND on top of this a full time Chinese teacher is hired, NO THANK YOU! During our time at Children's Choice our children received wonderful care from the teachers, and from many of the directors (there were quite a few "lemons" over the years), but we had never been happier than with this particular director there. Myself and others want answers as to why this poor decision was made, as it has directly affected our youngest, as his teacher (one of the best in the school in my opinion) is leaving because of these changes. We are confident that our favorite director will find a job where the hard work and dedication she has will be appreciated and we wish her the best of luck. As for us, we are seriously considering disenrollment.

Pros: some really wonderful teachers

Cons: poor corporate decisions, bad communication, cheap food

.

The majority of staff are untrained and unproffessional. They constantly cuss and discuss very inappropriate, adult things in front of the children. The current "director" is completely uneducated and unkowledgable in her position. A few of the teachers are not qualified, including the "director".
The classrooms are consistantly over ratio. Many of the families are unhappy, along with the few good teachers.
The schools enrollment is down, so they got rid of alot of their good, qualified teachers and directors. They only buy the cheapest foods for the kids, so you can expect ramen noodles and no protien most of the time. They also cut portion sizes to save money.
If you're okay with your child having little supervision, being hungry, and learning from teachers who model bad language and behavior.... then send your child here.
This is not a safe place for children, especially if they can not speak for themselves.

Cons: managment, unqualified staff, corproate decisions, ratios, cleanliness, meals

I have had my son at Children's Choice since he was one-year old. I have had an extremely pleasant experience with the teachers as well as the administration. There is always a friendly "hello" from at least one person in the room everyday. He has also learned so much about the world, cultures, musicians and artists. The school does a wonderful job at making the family involoved. There is always different activites for families to attend. They also have great communication, making sure to call if anything seems out of the ordinary. My son will be leaving at the end of this year and I truly will miss the security of dropping off my child each day at a facility I love.

Thank you so much for your continued loving care and guidance of my children.
Since coming to Children?s Choice about a month ago, we have been so pleased with our daughters care. Your facility demonstrates outstanding care and concern for our children.

I have Recently Quit working for childrens choice and i would never put my child in that facility. Half of the staff is teenagers and they couldn't care less about the children. A lot of the people working there are substanance users Along with strippers and heavy drinkers and they never do testing because they would loose most of the staff. The exception is a few girls their that are way Awsome who are kind and polite. But most of the girls in the past have been awful. I have noticed they are trying to clean up the people who are working for them but all the teachers bounce around so much you never know who your gonna get and man parents have complained about it.

I recently had to take my child out of this school due to my child having chronic injuries at the school without any documentation, calls, nothing. As a matter of fact her teacher admitted to these injuries and not documenting or notifying me. Upon hearing this, I became very upset and demanding answers. Meanwhile the only staff there is teenagers after 5ish or so. My child would always have her shoes on the wrong feet and I approached this shoe matter and they said if "they put her shoes on all the time then she would not know she has to dress herself"!!!! I guess showing her the proper way is too much for these people. Needless to say after children and family services got involved, the case worker instructed me to take her out of this school. If you need any more convincing why you should not take your child to this school you should not be a parent!!! I wish anyone luck who attempts this school (if its still open).

I have a toddler and a 4 year old that attend Children's Choice. The teachers come and go often - generally the good one's leave pretty quickly. The communication is inconsistent and sparse. We often receive random bits of news in the mail - but rarely is it informatitve specifically about my child. When my oldest child began attending the school they conducted performance based reporting based upon the cirriculum taught in the classroom - but I have not seen any of those reports in quite some time.

My toddler frequently bites other children, and frequently gets bitten in his classroom. I realize this is a normal reaction for toddler's to have in frustrating situations - but after many "incident reports" it seems to me the staff would realize they need to keep a close eye on my child when he is active with other children considering his disposition to biting - but they usually have an excuse as to why incidient's continue to happen.

The only reason my children attend this school is that I could find no other day care provider that would take an infant on a part-time basis, and I felt I had no other options at the time. (This is another story, as at initial enrollment they said they would take my infant part-time, but once my child was born the director said she could not take him. I eventually had to call the corporate office to get them to enroll my child.)
The school is clean, my children are safe and seem to have a reasonably good time. I have pulled a report on the school from the state child protetive servcies website and there have been no gross negligence reports. Most reports were in regards to student ratio violations - which seems to be fairly common as I looked at other schools reports to get a basis for comparisons.

Considering that my family spent over $20K in child care last year ( and one of my children attends on a part-time basis!!) this school is not worth that kind of money. Keep looking...

I would like to say that I really think this is a great school. The teachers are amazing! My son is in the 4 year old room and LOVES it! The teachers a very caring, and attentive to his needs and I am continually schocked on his knowledge at 4 years old! ( He was telling me the other day about the "earth spinning around to make it dark and its called "rotation"..HE IS 4!!) To me that is an AMAZING teacher! The directors are very open and honest about any issues you may have and encourage you to come and talk to them. They are always at the front desk or available no matter what time I arrive for my child. To me that shows they are commited to the parents as well as the teachers. My child always comes first at this center and I could net be happier!! My opinion?? Best School around!!!

Our 3 year old son has been at Children's Choice Fox Ridge for nearly 3 years now and we have just LOVED IT! The director has always been very straight-forward and honest with us and we really appreciate that. She has always taken quick steps to solve any problems. The rates are competitive and the owner is open to direct contact and responds quickly to our needs as well! That is a huge value to us.

Also, our son has always loved his teachers and he looks forward to going to school every day. He has learned SO MUCH and is absolutely thriving there! He continuously amazes us with the things he is learning. The education there is top-notch and he is very much loved ... we can see that every day, not just in his current teachers but in all of the staff.

Even though this CC was under different ownership when our son was an infant, we love the current infant teachers (one of them was there when under the different owners) and trust that our new baby will be well looked after when he gets there this fall. Will he be picked up every time he cries? No, but nor would I expect him to get used to that! Ask any mother with multiple children to look after how hard that is. However, I would expect that each child is attended to and engaged in a timely manner whether content or not. Some days are probably more harried than others, but every time I've gone back there over the last few years all of the babies seem happy and content and well-cared for!

No daycare is perfect and it is sad that a few people have had bad experiences, that is to be expected in life, but before anyone makes a choice about attending this school or not they should visit the school and talk to other parents. There are MANY of us who have had EXTREMELY GOOD experiences with this school and would highly recommend it! It is always wise to get a wide variety of opinions and make your own decision. Good luck!

I would just like to state that yes I wrote a review for the school. I will not go into all the bad things written about me however I will state that NONE of what I wrote was a lie. I believe in this school and every school we have whole heartedly and would HIGHLY recommend this school to anyone. I think that it is a shame that one person can have a bad experience and write how horrible a place is. I am proud to defend my school and all the Children's Choice's! And no I am not the only one who thinks that or our schools are excellent or our schools would be empty instead of having families that have been there and loved it for years! They just tell all their friends in person.

My son goes to the infant room at this daycare in Castle Rock. I decided to move him to Children?s Choice in Castle Rock from other facility because this facility was very clean, but his caregivers are not capable of giving enough attention to him. At the first I didn?t like that everybody was wearing outside shoe in the infant room, but I know the fact that his caregivers are very loving and giving him enough attention and I realized that any caregivers couldn?t not give everything because they are not me but they could give him a lot of kisses and hugs which he has been receiving from them. Sometimes the ration is not 1:3 as advertised because of their time schedule conflict, but I can see that they try hard to take care of children as much as they can. At the other facility I could feel that caregivers had preference on children, but at the Children?s Choice in Castle Rock I haven?t felt it at all. I have decided that I overlooked little things I don?t like since my son has been getting enough attention, love and kiss and his caregivers are nice people and genuinely loves children. Don?t you think that this is the most important to your kids?

My son started going to Children's Choice on Colorado Blvd. when he was 2.5 years old and went there for 5 months. In the 5 months: 1) three of his teachers left; 2) my son never started to like this place: he cried every time I left. The only reason he went there was b/c I could not find any better place for his age (several great day cares we looked at had a requirement to be potty trained). One time I overheard one young teacher telling another "I hate my kids, they are evil" (she was talking about kids in her class and it was a joke, but still there's no excuse for saying things like that in my opinion). And I agree with a previous poster: what a shame for Leigh Graham (who was a director of this center at the time my son went their) to write a review pretending to be a real parent!

Cons: high teacher turnover ratio, very young teachers, not enough supervision

.

There are 2 things funny about Leigh Grahams post!! Number one: she is the director for the castle rock children's choice and number 2: she does not even have a daughter. My son was in the 2 year old classroom and absolutely hated it! He cried everyday when I dropped him off. I thought he just had some separation anxiety but when I changed him to another child care facility, he cried the first day and has never cried since. I would not recommend this facility to anyone!!

My baby is in the Lambs at a different CC. CC promises lower ratios. However when I drop of my baby, the ratios are always over. It seems as though everyday there are multiple babies crying because they need fed/cared for. But the teachers are too busy with other babies to attend to all of their needs. It is really hard and sad to walk in and see this poor little boy crying his head off because he's hungry and the staff is too busy to feed him! I was there for at least 15 minutes and this poor little boy was not even picked up to make him feel better. Is that how you want your hungry child treated???? My baby does not cry often, so rather is left in a swing or crib without any attention because he/she does not cry out for it! A baby needs stimulation. Adults who respond to infant signals and needs build infants' self-esteem and physical and cognitive abilities. Also, This facility has trouble keeping track of my baby?s day, his diapers, pacifiers, naps, bottles, EVERYTHING. And its amazing how when I ask a question, no one seems to know! This can be VERY frustrating! I dont want my baby wearing community diapers that are 2 sizes too small because the staff is incapable of keeping track of things that are clearly labeled.
With the ratios being off this leaves children left in swings too long, being left in cribs long after waking up, or before they are even sleepy and They are left upset and hungry, or even just lonely for far too long! Babies also need a constant change of scenery to stimulate their minds. Quality and frequency of adult-child interactions are critical variables in infant care. As a mother I want to know the staff is doing everything they can to make sure my baby is happy and satisfied!
The center director seemed genuinely concerned with issues, however she does not seem to stay on top of the issue afterwards, to make sure everything stays top notch. As with any parent, I would like to have piece of mind when my child is there. As of now, I don't.

Pros: Director, Positive Potenial, Homely Feeling

Cons: Ratios not followed, Parking, Security, Daily sheets, Cleanlyness, Interaction is Poor

I would not recommend this school to anyone. My son was injured when he was one years old and they did not know what happened. 3 people at the school had several different stories that occured. The classrooms are extremely overcrowded with very low supervision. I had my son come home with bites and scratches on his face and body almost every single day. When I would drop my child off there would only be one teacher to about 15 children. I pulled my child out of this school and he has never encountered these issues since then.

My son loves it here! He is constantly learning and he has made so many friends with the children and his teachers. I also love the fact that the director knows not only my name but my son's name and our older daughter who does not even attend the school. It really makes you feel like home!

Pros: customer service, learning atmosphere, staff and director

Cons: parking
